passed the assault weapons ban. the vote strictly along party lines, 10-8. senator dianne feinstein was given a history lesson on the cons fusion by freshman senator ahead of this passage and she promptly shot back. >> it seems to me that all of us should begin as our foundational document with the constitution. and the second amendment in the bill of the rights for the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. >> i'm not a sixth grader. i thank you for the lecture. incidentally, this does not prohibit you use the word prohibit. it exempts 2,271 weapons. isn't that enough? >> the assault weapons ban moves to a vote in the full senate. that's likely to come up next month. >>> all right. so it is the beginning of a new era for the catholic church today. the newly elected pope francis taking part in a private prayer service it morning at the santa maria basilica in rome. his first official event was a huge contrast to the events we witnessed yesterday. certainly the crowds outside the sistine chapel going wild when the chimney spewed white smoke signaling the el
set to be considered next month. california senator dianne feinstein fought hard to keep that provision, but promises by republicans to block the full package prevailed there. instead senators will consider hiking penalties for people who purchase guns on behalf of those who are barred from having them. the ban will be offered as a second amendment but is expected to fail when it comes up after the easter recess. >>> disturbing new details about that close call at the university of central florida. police released this video of officers responding to a 911 call monday about a student with a gun. it came after a false fire alarm one said police say was tripped by the suspect in an attempt to lure students outside. so they could be easy targets. the emergency call came from a roommate after he says the suspect pulled a gun on him. >> like a gun, like large assault gun, i don't know if it's a real gun. i don't know what it is, but i just saw it and slammed my door shut and locked it. >> police found the would-be shooter dead from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound on
for the floor angered dianne feinstein, who is not giving up. >> this is very important to me. i'm not going to lay down and play dead. i think the american people have said in every single public poll that they support this kind of legislation. >>> joining me now for more on that, and all the other political news, for our daily fix, chris cillizza, and susan page. hi to both of you. while i'm away, you let the assault weapons ban die, practically, at least harry reid says he's not going to let it go forward. susan, his calculus is that it didn't have the votes and he wanted to have something passed. that's good tactics in terms of the senate, but isn't it surrendering to the nra? >> well, it's a cold calculation. what can get through the senate, the straw purchasing provision my biblt get through the senate. it's possible that university background checks, to gun shows and other venues might get through, but there was no way an assault weapons ban was going to get through this senate. not only because reps were opposed. we had half a dozen democratic senators expressing opposition or raisin
reid said it didn't have the votes to pass. senator dianne feinstein who introduced the ban said it this way. i cannot fight the nra. the nra spends unlimited sums backed by the gun manufacturer who are craven in my view. i don't know what we can done other than drafting a bill. in asking for support and enabling something to pass in the senate now i could put a hold on the whole package but i'm not going to do that. so instead the rest of the gun safety bill will go forward without the assault weapons ban. of course there is a possibility it could be attached to a later bill but certainly there is not a guarantee. gun safety is fast becoming a low priority in washington. and another is immigration. john boehner praised the bipartisan house group working on immigration legislation. >> there are a lot of issues in here that have to be dealt with and i think what this bipartisan group came up with is frankly a pretty responsible solution. >> michael: sounds like progress but of course this being washington self promotion is as much a priority as actual legislation. in these days no
that will succeed. >> senator dianne feinstein who sponsored the ban was clearly irritated. the california democrat told reporters, obviously, i'm disappointed. i tried my best but my best i guess was not good enough. you'd think congress would listen but they clearly listened to the national rifle association and they do. the ban would have outlawed it nearly 160 semiautomatic weapons and limited the size of magazines to ten rounds. and in today's "daily news" a removal of the assault rifle ban saying, quote. any fool knows that ryan lanza couldn't have possibly have killed as many children as quickly as he did on this morning december 14th without an assault weapon in his hand. so how does the president and any big if not now for a ban on these weapons, when? if sandy hook elementary doesn't make every member of congress take a stand against assault weapons in this country, then what does? this moment, the moment of newtown, of sandy hook, elementary, should not be lost because if it is, maybe it is lost forever. it was officially lost in washington on tuesday, lost to fear and lost to ignorance
with these weapons. >> that was senator dianne feinstein and junior senator ted cruz of texas in a heated exchange on whether to restore assault weapons ban which was passed under former president clinton and then allowed to expire under former president george w. bush. the bill ultimately passed the senate judiciary committee 10-8 along party lines. but after all that outrage and bluster, we've learned that senate majority leader harry reid has decided to remove the assault weapons ban from a larger reform package. it will, instead, be voted on as an amendment. nbc's mike viqueira joins us live now. mike, what happened? why did the majority leader decide that 157 different models of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines did not deserve to be a part of a broader bill to ensure that tragedies like that in aurora, in newtown, connecticut, never happen again? what's happened? >> reporter: well, you know, harry reid was faced with a very fundamental question, martin. he could put on what is essentially an unpopular measure, dianne feinstein notwithstanding, and that's a renewal of the assault we
bill next month won't include senator dianne feinstein's assault weapons ban. handing a political victory in round one to the nra. according to reid it was a numbers game. >> right now her amendment using the most optimistic numbers has less than 40 votes. that's not 60. i'm not going to try to put somebody on the floor that won't succeed. i want something that will succeed. >> i saw that coming. feinstein who has championed the cause for decades of fighting assault weapons plans to keep fighting for her ban. >> very powerful. i've known that all my wife. it doesn't take a weapon away from anyone. i mean, my goodness, the nra says there are 2 million of these or 3 million of them, whatever it is, in the country already. how many assault weapons do you need in the united states of america? >> well, the new york covered that this morning. look at that, wow. the headline "shame on u.s., assault weapons bill is dead." that is tough. surrounded by the photos of the children there killed in newtown, connecticut. not a bad memory to keep in mind. first, just three months after newtown an
and there will be amendments i'm sure from senator feinstein who has been a champion over the course of decades because of her own experience in san francisco and what she has seen frankly across this country. so we'll work on this and find the votes and it deserves a vote. let's see if we can get it done. >> one of the most controversial policy aspects of this administration has to do with drones. you have been part of the system first when you were with the national security council and now also where these secret robot planes kill people, hopefully enemies of the united states, but there is little accountability according to critics, little transparency, and little legal recourse for the victims who are innocent. would you be comfortable with the same situation you have in place right now under a president palin or president ryan? >> here's what i -- you know, again, i'm not going to try and engage in hypotheticals. here's what i can tell you, jake. the president of the united states will take every step he can to protect this country and that is exactly what he's done. there are also very important checks
that will succeed. >>> senator dianne feinstein who sponsored the ban was irritated. she said, obviously i'm disappointed. i tried my best, but my best, i guess, was not good enough. you'd think the congress would listen, but they clearly listen to the national rifle association. the ban would have outlawed 160 semiautomatic weapons and limited the size of magazines to 10 rounds. leaders are now debating which proposals will be included under consideration, a measure that would make it a felony to purchase a gun for someone else, a grant program for school security, and expansion of background checks to private gun sales. that push for background checks which shows most americans support may not be included after negotiations with schumer and colbert installed earlier in the year. a bill is expected next month. >>> the two-year-old conflict in syria is entering a critical stage. they are accusing each other of using chemical weapons. the syrian state news agency reports at least 25 people were killed yesterday. american officials said they are looking into allegations while white house pre
control in decades. the bill's sponsor democratic senator dianne feinstein admitted that the road is uphill. earlier political comedian dino vidalla put the question on social media, with seven twitter followers. >> just moved up. i had six. >> here's what we asked. we asked whether you think that this ban has a chance of getting through congress. so here's what one person says. hate to poop on your parade but boehner went let it get to the floor for a vote. it can make republicans vulnerable before 2014 mid-term elections, and then someone else writes to dean, it will never get through the house unless, of course, obama comes out against it. so dean, people seem skeptical about congress. is that shocking? >> not shocking at all. it's unreal. you know what makes it really unbelievable to all of us is that 90% of americans in polls support universal background checks for anyone buying a gun, what's called the gun show loophole. the assault weapons ban will never pass. that's the interesting thing. congress does nothing. doesn't work on the budget. you know, doesn't pass gun control
says that senator dianne feinstein could introduce her proposed ban on assault weapons as an amendment to new gun legislation in order to at least get a vote on that. >>> and new shocking sex and drug allegations against the man who used to be the voice of elmo. the 24-year-old is suing kevin clash alleging he smoked crystal meth while engaging in sexual activity with stephens. the lawsuit alleges he also gave sheldon poppers as a sexual aid. that generally refers to capsule that's give users a rush when broken and inhaled. his attorney calls the suit meritless and barred by the statute of limitations. >>> interesting development this morning. the fda is giving up on graphic new warnings for cigarette packages. the justice department will not ask the supreme court to review a federal appeals court ruling that had blocked those new warnings. the rule stated that requiring such graphic labels on cigarettes would be a violation of free speech protections. the fda says it will now work to create new warning labels that comply with the 2009 tobacco control act. >>> it's something out of a d
and some moderate immigrants. the sponsor, dianne feinstein, said she will all the help she can get because she will be facing an 800 pound gorilla. the national rifle association. later today, a ceremony to welcome secretary chuck hagel to the pentagon. vice president biden will officiating at a ceremonial swearing-in that will be witnessed by friends and former colleagues, including senator hagel's brothers tom hagel and mike hagel, the painter. kerry,ecretary of state carr john brennan of the cia and james clapper. c-span is covering the event. you can see it later in our programming schedule. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. >> the simple fact is that we are all getting older together. we are not the same. we are beginning to have an inverted pyramid. that makes our challenges as it relates to entitlements and social security even greater. photo/slow going developing countries have had lower fertility rates, and al qaeda -- and now china is starting to feel the impact of its one child policy. we are better off than the rest of the developed world, but our fertilit
a lot of news come out of the exchange he had with senator feinstein. s wrote about it. part of the impact the tea party continues to have fun congress even though it has proved to be a loser when it comes to elections. if you combine a lack of a sense of humor with an absence of humility, you are not working on college of achievement. guest: when he started campaigning, he was less than 2%. he defeated a popular and well funded opponent in the primary. he ran away with the general election. people in the home state love them. the conservative movement cares for him very much. we hope more americans get to know him after his keynote speech this evening. there is a lot of tension in that sense, which is different from what it used to be. there are a lot more differences of opinion that we are used to. host: al cardenas is the chairman of the american conservative union. thank you. coming up, we will hear with the president of common cause, bob edgar. and we will hear from the group known as organizing for action. and we will talk about the impact sequestration is having and we
of opposition, and that bill, senator feinstein's assault weapons bill passed on a party line vote in the committee. but because it's tough isn't a reason not to move forward. i don't think we need anymore reason to motivate us than newtown. >> the committee meeting turned a little testy. i want to play this exchange for you viewers. >> it seems to me that all of us should begin as our foundational document with the constitution. and the second amendment and the bill of rights provides that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. >> i'm not a sixth grader. i've been on this committee for 20 years. i thank you for the lecture. incidentally, this does not prohibit -- you use the word prohibit. it exempts 2,271 weapons. isn't that enough? >> what can we expect to see and hear in the senate when that bill reaches the floor? >> well, unfortunately you're going to hear a lot more of the same that you just heard from senator cruz. a lot of it patronizing, as i think that exchange was. unfortunately, misapprehension what the second amendment prohibits. there i
and donilon talks about it and senator feinstein talks about it. the china loves to sign treaties, but don't honor any of them. remember the ripping off of dvd's and china was selling them on the streets. they said we're going to clamp down on copy right. and the name hackers, it bothers me, i think of somebody trying to get a bank account or information like that or trying to drive up traffic on a website, but they're trying to get state secrets. that doesn't sound to me like hackers. >> not only are they spies, but they're saboteurs going after critical infrastructure. the great 2003 blackout in the northeast, probably caused by a chinese hacker causing a cascade and a loss of power. and americans died in that. this is a serious issue. it's not just spying or hacking. >> during the heatwave we had folks dieing, the elderly. they're going off certain agencies and we know that microsoft has been infiltrated, apple has been looked at and google has pulled out of china in part because of this. what are they going after? >> they're going after everything, not just the national security establ
that senator feinstein and i have taken in a public release that we issued about a year ago that the claims that some make from cheney on down that the use of waterboarding led to useful information are false. those claims are not accurate. and i can only tell you we have publicly laid out our case that they're not accurate in a release that the two of us signed and issued about a year ago, and it's available on our web sites so you can kind of see it there. but what you can't see unless the cia cooperates is a very, very detailed history of the use of abusive tactics, what the administration then in power called enhanced interrogation techniques, some of which are torture under international law including waterboarding. i had a, i, frankly, had a lot of trouble with brennan when he was confirmed because he would not acknowledge that waterboarding is torture even though it is torture under international law, under geneva, according to our president. obama has said it is torture, it is. and, but to your point it's not just torture, it's not useful. it doesn't and did not produce, did not pro
